Police caution residents after Murrysville vehicle break-ins

Thursday, July 31, 2014, 9:45 p.m.
 

Murrysville police are urging residents to be vigilant in locking their cars and removing any valuables after a series of break-ins.

Sgt. Tom Kusinsky said Thursday that on Wednesday morning 10 residents reported thefts from 13 cars in the municipality's Manordale Farms and Westmoreland Farms sections.

Primarily small items were taken, Kusinsky said, including loose change, a purse, a wallet, and several expensive pairs of sunglasses.

There was no visible damage to the cars, Kusinsky said, although the vehicles' owners reported that their cars were locked.

“We are asking people first and foremost to lock their vehicles. If you can put your car in a garage at night, do so,” Kusinsky said.

He also advised residents to remove any items of value from their cars and leave on exterior lights if possible.

“If you see or hear anything suspicious at night, call. Don't wait until morning,” Kusinsky said.
